Step by step guide to change the Brita Stream Filter

Step 01: Wash your hand

It is essential to wash your hand before you touch the new filter.

This is because the gems available on the hand may pass to the filter and contaminate it.

In addition, the filter comes with a soft layer with tiny holes that may become the home of the bacteria if not carefully handled. 

Step 02: Remove the old filter

Remove the old filter by the press and twisting anti-clockwise. Then, separate the filter and move to the next step.

Step 03: Clean the picture

During the replacement of the filter, you have the opportunity to clean the picture with soap water. So use decent soap, not harmful for the drinking water container.

Clean the pitcher thoroughly. Soak it up with a soft dry cloth before attaching the filter.

Step 04: Rinse the filter.

Brita stream filter goes through several manufacturing processes. As a result, there are possibilities that the filter might have dust or material trapped on the surface. If you put the filter without cleaning, the particles may enter the water.

Rinse the filter for 15 seconds and see if any particles are visible on the surface of the filter. Remove them with your hand if you found any.

Step 08: Activate the smart light.

To activate the smart light the first time, pull down the handle and press the reset button place at the back of the tab three times. Then, put the holder back to its position. 

The smart light will get reset in few seconds, and your filter will be ready to use. The indicator will auto-reset and set the new timeline for the next replacement.

When should I change my Brita stream filter?

The average life of the Brita stream filter is about two months. Generally, the Brita stream filter can clean around 40 gallons of water; however, it is advisable to keep an eye on the water condition when you drink the water. 

If it looks dirty or tastes bad, there is something wrong with the filter. If you have recently change the filter, then see if your water connection is having a problem.
